you probably won't see this guy on tour any time soon
R&B duo Quadron, whose Robin Hannibal is also one half of Rhye, are currently on the road supporting Mayer Hawthorne, and will be touring with them through early March. That tour hits NYC on February 27 at Webster Hall and February 28 at Warsaw, with Quadron opening on both dates. Tickets for those shows are still available. All dates are listed below.
As mentioned, Rhye are also playing shows around that time, including NYC on February 21 at Webster Hall, which is sold out.
However, as Daily News points out, you won't see Robin Hannibal at either of those, as he chooses not to tour. From the Daily News interview:
Q: So it has nothing to do with you being too shy to be on stage?This may not come as a surprise if you've been following either band or caught them live in the past. He's a producer for both, but doesn't tour.
A: No, no. I've been on stage several times, but it doesn't give me satisfaction. What makes my clock tick and makes me excited is writing songs and making the music. ... Most people often don't know how long it takes to make 3 ½ minutes of music. It's a long process... and that's my complete focus.
Plus, my chops now as a musician aren't as good as they once were. That's why I think Coco and I work so well. She's an amazing performer and I'm not.
Since we last spoke, Ricky Eat Acid (Sam Ray of Julia Brown/Teen Suicide) has been added as an opener for Rhye's Webster Hall show. If you don't have tickets to that show but still want to catch him, you can do so much sooner at the previously discussed Gem Club show at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (2/2), which also has Foxes in Fiction on the bill. Tickets for that show are still available.
Meanwhile, Sam's other band Teen Suicide is going on a previously discussed tour with Special Explosion, Alex G and Sorority Noise which hits NYC on February 27 at Suburbia.

Seattle indie rockers Special Explosion began picking up speed with some self-released material in 2012, and they've just signed to Topshelf Records, who will release their forthcoming EP, The Art of Mothering, on February 25. There's a real early Death Cab vibe to the new record (especially in the vocals), but they're good songwriters in their own right too. You can stream the EP's first single, "Clotheslined" (via Stereogum), below. Also below is a stream of their old EP, which you can also buy (name your price) on bandcamp.
Special Explosion are also heading out on a tour this year which includes a run with Teen Suicide (Sam Ray of Julia Brown), Sorority Noise and Alex G, which will make for some consistently solid bills. That run brings those four bands to Brooklyn on February 27 at Suburbia (330 Melrose St).
All dates, including Treefort Music Fest, are listed, along with the song streams, below...
